Sublimity man gets six years for Albany sex crimes

A Sublimity man was sentenced to more than six years in prison for two sex crimes on Tuesday morning in Linn County Circuit Court.

Frederick Michael Koontz, 32, pleaded no contest to first-degree sex abuse and attempted first-degree sodomy in February.

The crimes occurred between November and December 2018.

Charges of unlawful sexual penetration and three counts of first-degree rape were dismissed at the sentencing hearing per terms of the plea agreement.

Koontz was scheduled for a three-day jury trial in mid-February, but that was cancelled due to the negotiated settlement in the case.

First-degree sex abuse is a Measure 11 crime with a mandatory minimum prison term, so Koontz will serve every day of the sentence, but he gets credit for time already served in jail. He also must register as a sex offender.

Koontz was initially charged in the case in February 2019 after an investigation by the Albany Police Department.
